I like PA. I think that you have to remember a job is a job no matter what. You’ll never be 100% happy anywhere

PA is better than industry in terms of enjoying the work. We get more variety in PA and more learning opportunities. However, we also work more and get paid less. In summary, I like the work in PA, but not the volume of it, and I don’t like taking less money than I could get elsewhere

Assuming someone starts at SC2 at the beginning of the calendar year (say Jan). What's the general time (years or months) when he/she becomes SC3?

Is a hike within rank (say SC1 to SC2 or SC2 to SC3) just the yearly hike or is it like a promotion hike (higher percentage which is seen during promotions)? #careerprogression

To those carrying.. did you stop drinking while trying to conceive? My husband and I just started and while neither of us are heavy drinkers, I’m wondering if cutting alcohol out is necessary?

I grew up in a family that doesn’t really resolve conflict. We make passive aggressive comments or just brush it under the rug because it always blows up into a fight. How do you bring up conflict/raise issues in a relationship or even during dating? I notice guys will ignore a message or try to make a joke to avoid addressing something and I don’t want to nag by bringing it up again, so I end up feeling ignored a lot until I resent them. What’s the best way to do this?

For context, he definitely expresses interest in me and my opinions, but he’s often one driving the conversations and we end up mostly talking about topics he brings up.
